PHOTOBOOK AWARDS 2016 : THE SHORTLIST

ANNOUNCING THE SHORT LIST FOR THE 2016 PARIS PHOTO–APERTURE FOUNDATION PHOTOBOOK AWARDS

Berlin, October 1, 2016

The Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards have been announced at the Opening Days of the European Month of Photography.

The Awards this year have been organized in collaboration with C/O Berlin, a Berlin-based charitable institution committed to photography and visual media.

This year’s shortlist selection was made by Christoph Wiesner (Artistic Director, Paris Photo), Lesley A. Martin (Creative Director of the Aperture Foundation book program and of The PhotoBook Review), David Campany (author, curator, and artist), Ann-Christin Bertrand (curator, C/O Berlin), and Becky Senf (Chief Curator and Norton Family Curator of Photography at the Center of Creative Photography).

The winners are to be announced at the twentieth running of Paris Photo on November 11, 2016. The thirty-five selected photobooks will be profiled in The PhotoBook Review, issue 011, and exhibited at Paris Photo and Aperture Gallery in New York, December 10, 2016 – February 2, 2017.

Initiated in November 2012 by Aperture Foundation and Paris Photo, the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards celebrate the photobook’s contribution to the evolving narrative of photography, with three major categories: First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photography Catalogue of the Year.
